Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : i. High E : Lakatakissima (5.8)
By: Dana Bartlett When: Nov 15, 2015

Comments: The first pitch is not of the quality of Directississima or Ridiculissima, but I have done it several times and it is worth at least two stars.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : h. The Arrow Wall - CCK : Proctoscope (5.9+)

Comments: The third pitch is completely overgrown and that's too bad. The climbing is different from the usual 'Gunks fare.

Comments: Pitch 1 is covered with lichen and not climbable in its current condition. Unfortunate; it's nice face climbing.

Comments: Walked by this earlier in the year. As with many of the climbs in these sections of the Nears, this hasn't been done in a while and is starting to get overgrown.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : a. The Uberfall : No Picnic (5.5)

Comments: I also don't find the gear great below the roof.

When your chin is level with the roof, reach out left and you can get a good cam.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Near Trapps : d. Harvest Moon to the End : Scrambled Legs (5.10+)

Comments: Bill Ravitch and I looked at this after doing Muriel's Nose. We planned to come back in a few days and do it, Ivan was bit quicker. He told us that he pulled his calf muscle while heel hooking the roof, hence the name Scrambled Legs

Comments: I tried leading it. 5.7 solo to the roof, then very small stoppers in a horizontal below the roof - an unpleasant fall if you didn't make it.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : h. The Arrow Wall - CCK : Steep Hikin' (5.9)

Comments: Regarding the previous comment:

Did you have small cams? I can't imagine you didn't. I have done this route 3-4 times and I always get a decent Metolius blue that is at knee level as the crux is pulled.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : i. High E : Insuhlation (5.9)
By: Dana Bartlett When: Sep 24, 2014

Comments: The description is spare (in Dana's customary fashion) but since he mentions the shallow open book I think he is correctly describing Insuhlation not Teeny Face.

As usual, Seth is correct.

Comments: I did lead this many years ago, and I recall the protection was adequate. If you came off pulling the roof it would be a bit of a splat.

Comments: Just did it again - closer to 5.9.

Comments: Some 70s are longer than others, I suppose. We had room to spare when we abseiled from the tree.


Location: NY : The Gunks : Sky Top : A Pilgrim's Progress (5.8)

Comments: There is quite a bit of climbing past Pilgrim's Progress.

Comments: After the overhang on pitch three you can go right instead of left and do the roof that is part of G Forces. Pretty wild 5.9.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : g. V3 - Middle Earth : Blunderbus (5.9+ R)

Comments: I think if you search one of the Gunks reunion threads on Supetopo there is a picture of the bus incident.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : c. Frog's Head - the Arch : Uncle Rudy (5.7+ PG13)

Comments: I have to go with Seth here. I found a place after the roof for a small cam, and I didn't need to work hard or stretch too far.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : i. High E : High Exposure (5.6)
By: Dana Bartlett When: Sep 7, 2013

Comments: High Exposure was rated 5.7 in the 1964 guide. But it is 5.6.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Trapps : c. Frog's Head - the Arch : Sultana (5.8 PG13)
By: Dana Bartlett When: Sep 6, 2013

Comments: I've done both Scungilli and Sultana.
Fine routes, your resume is incomplete if you haven't done them.
Yesterday's Lemonade, Raspberry Sundae, Beyond the Fringe, Sheep Thrills - people walk right by these on their way to what? The McCarthy Wall, High E., etc.
I don't get it.

Comments: This climbs much better than it looks. Aside for the last bit - which didn't seem difficult - there are plenty of opportunites for protection.


Location: NY : The Gunks : The Near Trapps : d. Harvest Moon to the End : Across From the Fruitstand (5.4)
By: Dana Bartlett When: May 23, 2013

view comment >>
Comments: I didn't think this was particularly loose. Anyway, if it was climbed a bit more and cleaned up it would be popular (End of the Near Trapps popular) as the face climbing is exposed and very nice.

Comments: That P1 rappel pinch eats slings for breakfast

That's for sure.

Comments: One of the few routes to be downgraded from its original rating. It was 5.7 in the 1964 guide.

Comments: legend tells a story of a climber whose rope was chopped when he fell above the move, and his rope was pulled across the sharp lip of the roof. The legend says that he fell to the ground (!) but suffered only a broken ankle.

Definitely not a legend. Early, mid '80s? Anyway, free fall to the ground from just above the lip, crashing through the trees saved his life. I don't know the extent of his injuries, but I believe they were not particularly serious and far less than would be expe... more >>
